Dalim Software - where production meets business processes
Thursday, April 29, 2010
Kehl, Germany - Dalim Software, makers of highly efficient, scalable software solutions for the creation, production and management of cross-media content, has just launched the latest release of ES 1.1, their streamlined customer-facing environment for online file delivery and approval.
Featured in this release are significant enhancements to the High Resolution Soft Proofing option, such as extended PDF layer support for improved visual approval. Additionally, specifically for the labels and packaging markets, an operator with just a couple of mouse clicks can simulate a specific printing process or ink characteristics, by changing opacity and the order of separations.
Most notable are the two new optional modules, "Enterprise Project Tracking" and "Custom Job Ticket", that complete the circle of incremental production processes by adding the necessary business logic into ES. Having the ability to define all the necessary project tasks (such as project setup, artwork delivery, prepress tasks, approvals, output and final print, just to name a few) and their associated deadlines in ES, helps all participants in the production cycle to track the progress, anticipate delays and reallocate resources if necessary.
The new job tickets extend the use of industry standards like XMP, IPTC, EXIF, and others - allowing the operator to enrich already existing metadata by either individually building tickets or from JDF-compliant MIS systems that turn ES into a centralized information hub for all participants and aspects of any project.
Christopher Graf, CCO at Dalim Software GmbH, said, "With ES 1.1 we're enabling our clients to centralize all their business critical processes onto a single web platform. This new version is a major achievement in our mission to deliver strategic media technologies to the industry."
